    I have one question. Why not pull the good mechanical stuff off of the WRECKED car and use it to make the straight, clean one a nice driver? Seems to me that makes more sense. Unless the President is a rust bucket or something . . .

    Or do you have a real sentimental attatchment to the wrecked one?

    I dunno. I would just like to know . . .

            The president is the one we are going to put on the road. The fenders were just sitting on there two bolts each. Removed to faciliate cleaning. Took mangled parts off of the Champion to get the bolts and to see just what's left. Plus I guess we just like to do things the hard way. We are going to start the engine in the Champion to make sure its ok before we transplant it. I hope that answers your questions. If not more than happy to answer more.

                OK, one more. Why not install a V8 back in the President, never a better time then now.

                    There is a 289 in the Champion that destined for the President. The carburator is getting destroyed though. Will get a two barrel set up.

                        I'm real confused. I thought the Champion was the wrecked car, and it had a transplanted V8. I thought the V8 from the Champion was going into the President.

                        Am I wrong?[}]

                            Nope you are correct. We are all a little confused.
                            President gets 289 from Champion and Auto Tranny. Gets upgraded to 12 volts gets air conditioning too.
